If you receive the following warning when launching the game on newer PCs with plenty of system resources (powerful CPU, lots of RAM, etc):



You can fix it by editing the TV_CD_DVD.ini file (full path in my case is D:\Games\Tribes Revengeance\Tribes Vengeance\Program\Bin\TV_CD_DVD.ini) and changing:

RequireMinSpec=True

To:

Code:
RequireMinSpec=False

After consulting expert and savior jackfuste from wide screen gaming forum (WSGF), the technical reason this happens is:

As for error, it's happened because the programmer used "signed int" data type.
"signed int" data type have range of values from 2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647 and this is not enough to store the value of video memory, since modern videocards haves more that 2GB of video memory.


Hope this helps!
